A hoarding, self Seeking, bottom feeder unwilling to help other with resources they have. Who does things only for his own benefit and is often morally shunned. People who have little to no conscience and will lie, cheat, steal and manipulate others for their own benefit. A person who cares only for themselves and has no empathy or sympathy for others. These people will often ask who's going to pay for social solutions and admit they don't care enough to want to pay.
